Chargers Beat: Kenneth Farrow could get RB3 job

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers undrafted running back Kenneth Farrow has made some noise of his own.

“I really liked the way he ran the ball against Tennessee,” Chargers coach Mike McCoy said this week of the rookie's outing Aug. 13.

McCoy praised Farrow’s “physical” and "downhill" style.

The stakes will rise for the University of Houston alumnus on Thursday. No. 3 running back Branden Oliver sustained a season-ending injury last Sunday, and Farrow is seen as a potential replacement despite having missed the past two exhibitions.

Fantasy Impact: 

Farrow, who was joined in the competition Monday by Atlanta Falcons castoff Gus Johnson, will work in his second NFL exhibition. Versus the Titans, he rushed 16 times for 60 yards (3.8 per carry) and caught two passes for 25 yards. If Farrow gets the job, he's a Melvin Gordon injury away from possible significant carries so this is a name, and a camp competition, to watch as we head closer toward the season.
